If you are looking for The Hilton or Sheridan type hotel, this is not for you. The building is almost 300 years old and is in great shape for that age. But as with all older buildings, the stairs creek, the floors are slanted and the doors sometimes stick. But that is the character of The Curtis House. It is quintessential New England. It reminds me of my Grand Parents house. The smell of fresh coffee brewing in the morning is awesome. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. All have TVs and for those rooms that share a bath, there is a pedestal sink in each room to freshen up with. I am staying in Room 3 which is off the main hall and my Mother and Sister are in room 1. Room 3 is a small room with private bath but perfect for one person. Room 1 has two large beds and full bath with a claw foot tub. There is free wireless WI-FI through out the Inn.
There are many stories of the place being haunted. Gordon Ramsey recently redecorated room 16 which is considered the most haunted of the rooms. Room 1 has some unique haunting stories as well as does the ret of the Inn.
The Carriage House is a separate building that is perfect for a large family or group. There are four rooms that have the same floor plan. There is a common room at the entrance which is nicely decorated. Downstairs there is a Barber.
There is a sidewalk that follows the Antiques Trail as Woodbury is the Antiques Capitol of CT. The Barn, a fitness club, is located a short walking distance. Lake Quassapaug and the associated amusement park are a 5 minute drive.
As of 6/26/13, a lot of the old favorites are back!! Being as they had to run the short menu for 30 days, those who love the old standby's will be happy once again!! The Short Rib Yankee Pot Roast is, in my opinion, the best item on the menu. Very succulent and tender. Also, for dessert lovers, the Fudge Brownie is incredible but be prepared to share as it is usually too much for one person.
There are two restaurants and 3 dining rooms. All serve from the same menu but have different atmospheres. The Main dining room is appointed with cloth table cloths and is a formal setting as is the Colonial room, also upstairs. The Pub, which is downstairs, is a more relaxed family atmosphere. There is a sit down bar and plenty of tables and booths.
All in all, a great experience. Great food, great staff and a great place to stay if you like Old New England.
